Table 1 Differences between seeds from the minute hilum isoline (UC413) and the recurrent parent isoline Clark 63 (UC7)

From: Overexpression of an ethylene-forming ACC oxidase (ACO) gene precedes the Minute Hilum seed coat phenotype in Glycine max

Parameter measured UC7 (ii R T Mi g) UC413 (ii R t mi G)
Weight of 100 seedsa 23.56 ± 1.87 g 20.00 ± 1.68 g
Weight of 100 seedsb 16.20 ± 1.03 g 15.54 ± 0.44 g
Weight of 100 seedsc 14.1 g 12.1 g
Average length of 100 seedsc 6.57 ± 0.41 mm 4.62 ± 0.71 mm
Pod lengthd 4.55 ± 0.63 cm 3.49 ± 0.53 cm
Number of seeds per podd 2.70 ± 0.58 2.15 ± 0.68
  1. a Weight values represent the average of 2 (UC7) and 5 (UC413) separate measurements of 100 seeds each from two different plants of each variety, made soon after harvest (6/2017)
  2. b Weight values represent the average of 12 (UC7) and 14 (UC413) separate measurements of 100 seeds each from two different plants of each variety, made soon after harvest (5/2016)
  3. c Weight and seed length of one 100 seed sample taken from seeds kept in storage for two years after harvest in 2013
  4. d Number of pods measured for this analysis was 547 for UC7 and 505 for UC413 from four different plants of each variety. The pod length and number of seeds per pod values are the mean of those many pod measurements
